Not really sure why all the angst around sending him down to SPR.
He's is a prospect, a project, he was never touted to be NHL ready. He's only 20 years old still developing physically and mentally. He spent some time in the AHL and came to camp much improved but has been unable to sustain it. So back he goes for some more work. Don't think there is any more to it than that, he's not the first in the history of the game and certainly not the last.
Larson and his crew seem to be doing a great job, so put Joey back in his hands. The biggest plus IMO is that he will be getting practice time (reps, reps, reps) and at the center position. Three or four days of work a week plus the games should be just what the doctor ordered. He'll be playing with JAM, Draz, Kubalik, and the rest of the prospects. Additionally Craig and the rest of the vets seem to be providing some great on ice leadership.
So many positives, don't see the negatives.
